I'm not sure about $1499 U.S. for a GH1 with the 14-140mm lens. Don't get me wrong - the G1 and GH1 are lovely cameras. I was handling a G1 at B&H yesterday. The camera is great and that EVF is just stunning- a small HDTV. But I can't see that kind of price - the competition in that range is tough. Just my humble opinion. I wish Panasonic all the best.

Oh, by the way, I can't vouch for the accuracy of what I was told, but a salesman let slip that the Olympus micro four-thirds camera is due in June. No date - just "in June." He said don't expect it to look like that one photo Olympus released last year. Take it for what it's worth but these guys have yet to steer me wrong.

Default Overpriced

I have to agree with Biro. I'm a huge Panasonic fan, but they have priced the GH1 as if it's a unique camera in a niche market. It's not. There is lots of competition, and their cameras are more reasonably priced. The GH1 will sit on shelves and gather dust if Panasonic doesn't discount the price.
